Exodus 6:23 reveals that Moses’ sister-in-law’s name was Elisheba (or Elisheva) which translates as "God is my oath". As women of purpose, this is important to know for 2 main reasons- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
Last week, lovely, we talked about what the Israelite women in Exodus 3:22 had to teach us about claiming our dreams and how to do it.
Well, another powerful lesson that they teach us is why the old cliche “your network is your net worth” is actually true- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
Raise your hand if:
You know you're significant and that, like Esther, God made you "for such a time as this"?
God has already confirmed this to you by showing you what that significant thing about you is (your purpose)?
Your purpose involves turning the gifts, talents and passions that He gave you into profits by using them to serve others (business)?
BUT you’re also not sure how to make this manifest…
Well, the Israelite women in Exodus 3 give us 3 simple steps that will help you do exactly that- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
I almost called this post. “How to be used by God (passed Easter)” because I feel like we can find it really easy to share the gospel during festive periods such as:
Christmas and so on
But then struggle to do so when all the hype is over; in our every day lives. Can you relate, lovely?
Well, the female donkey that Jesus rode into Jerusalem gives us 5 simple steps to overcoming this and making it happen- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
Matthew 21:1-9 tells the story of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey just before His death. In verse 8-9, we are told that when the people Jerusalem saw Him they:
“spread their clothes on the road… cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. [They also] cried out, saying: ‘Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!’”
The branches that the people used were from palm trees- hence the reason why we celebrate this day as “Palm Sunday”.
Often, when I’ve heard this story told from the point of view of the donkey, one of the things that’s brought up is how lucky she was to have carried Jesus (yes, according to Matthew 21:2, the donkey was female).
But, if I’m honest, when I read it I started thinking about the fact that:
As much as carrying Jesus could have been considered the epitome of her donkey career- He was still a weight
Her greatest success was also a great burden and so-
It costs to have a calling on your life
I was also able to extract 5 lessons that she teaches us, as modern women, about how to handle this effectively. I shared all of this and more on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
So last week, lovely, we explored Jochebed (Moses’ mother) and what she had to teach us about how to faith it til you make it.
In this post, we’ll be diving deeper into her story so that we can uncover what the events of her life show us about:
Why it’s important to protect your dreams (especially in the early stages of when God has revealed them to you)
The 3-step process to protecting them so that they can become manifest, allowing you to speak up, step out and shine as the woman of God that He ordained you to be.
I shared all of this and more on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
There are 5 ladies of great significance in Moses’ early life, as detailed in Exodus 1 and 2:
Jochebed (his biological mother)
Shiphrah (his midwife)
Puah (also his midwife)
Miriam (his sister)
Pharaoh’s daughter (his adopted mother)
What struck me most about them is how they buck the traditional stereotype that women can’t get along! I mean, sis, they literally all came together in order to preserve their joint vision- protecting Moses and keeping him alive- despite the fact that the Pharaoh reigning at the time had commanded that all Hebrew boys be killed at birth!
Not only that, they did it successfully!
So clearly these 5 bad-ass women have a lot to teach us about the power of collaboration in bringing our God-given visions to life and how to do it- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
